George Bush Declines Store Greeter Job Offer

 

Elliott's Hardware published a letter in a Dallas newspaper in which they offered George W. Bush a part-time job as one of their store greeters. Some of the job benefits included parking for George W. Bush's security detail and an employee discount.

The letter described George Bush as being perfect for the job as he had excellent "people skills" and would fit right in with other geriatrics employed by Elliott's. The letter also said the work would be "much less stressful" than his previous job.

Bush actually went to the store and told the store manager that he was "looking for a job." Wearing a name tag labeled "W", Mr. Bush spent a hour at the store talking to customers while shopping but ultimately decided to reject the store's offer.

Yeah.. too bad he couldn't have shown it during his presidency.

  The bastard  
 
So apparently, he was capable of acting like a human being all along. But he didn't.

It was one thing when he was inhuman, and doing the things he did. It's much harder to justify his actions if he's a human being, doing inhuman things.

I know what you mean..

This shows how low people are, I would shut the door in his face if he came near my home.

  Bush did the...  
 
Best he could with materials given to him. He could have done a much better job.. IF the Congress/Senate (and their lobbying lackeys) had supported him and his decisions rather than nailing his feet to the floor, and throwing everything they could in his path. If they would pass the bills and packages as intended rather than load them up with bad extras.. (ie. 20million to study a microscopic bug only found in the waters in one area in one cove of this lake in some obscure place.)

Yes, studying things is always a bad idea.

And given the recent rash of stories of completely fictional money pits, I'm sceptical that any of it is even true.

I don't care what anyone says, I would like to smoke a big fat doobie with Double-yuh.
Horrible president, awesome stoner buddy.

  It must be nice  
 
to be able to turn down a job in these tough economic times. "Now go home George and sit on your pile of oil money".

I think your probably right. I always felt a little sorry for george, its cheney and the others who are pure evil, george is just stupid.
